Besides the obvious appropriateness with my middle name being Joy and all, and this being the season where we speak of good tidings of great joy, I have been challenged personally to choose joy lately.
I have pregnancy hormones running amuck, my body is betraying me, my mind is restless with the unknowns accompanying Blueberry's arrival, so yeah, some days I have to choose joy.
And, I might as well share that joy with you. It's kindof the point of my blog anyway.
To start us out, here is one thing I have been waiting for ALL year.
This is a fund-raising calendar for the Down Syndrome Association of Tulsa, and my nephew Solo (I've mentioned him once or twice ;-)) is one of the Mr. Decembers. I'm so happy I get to look at his cuteness all month as I hang out in my kitchen.
Here's a larger shot of the one in the upper corner.

I don't know what does!
